One aspect of our reputation is that we are the fun assisted living. We believe that life should be full no matter what age or ability level you are.
We also know that having fun together grows relational bonds and increases everyone's sense of purpose. That's why we want residents and caregivers alike to have fun - so much so that it's one of our values!
Our hero this week is someone who helps bring the fun to Frontida. Marie is our full time activities director at Frontida of Kimberly. We have two homes on one campus in Kimberly - one home is dedicated to memory care and the other is dedicated to mental health.
Marie has been with Frontida since we took over operation of the assisted living communities in Kimberly about a year and a half ago, but she has been with the residents there since before they were Frontida homes!
When you walk in, you can feel the light and active atmosphere that Marie has helped create. Marie values the individuality of each resident and plans activities to enrich and nurture each resident's interest: holiday parties, writing workshops, religious services, family get-togethers, fitness groups - she reaches everyone!
If you haven't had a chance to visit, stop in and see! And while you're there, congratulate Marie on being our hero!
